This is a very gray area Disregarding EULA (which we all follow to the letter) for sec.Lets ask where is the harm? Buying power leveled accounts (ie supporting gold farmers) 100% wrong which is the same as buying accounts from unknown sources. But what about buying or better yet being given an account from a friend who stops playing? Who does this hurt? Has this harmed any other players play experience? I'd say no, but is against the EULA for sure. I think a lot of this falls in the "medical maraijuana" zone; all thats illegal isn't wrong and everything thats legal isn't right.

I'm not sure that 'moral' is worth arguing about, but there is something indisputable about the whole mess.Blizzard will ban you if caught. Period.If a GM is banned, the guild will suffer in likely serious ways. Period.Right and wrong are the things man has been arguing about for centuries, so it will hardly stop even if it's just about something in a video game. Moral quandries are one thing, but screwing over your guild by doing something that is likely to get you banned is another. If the person in question has a problem with it, leave. Sounds like she did, which is great. I personally don't think reporting is worthwhile, as it'll cause more drama for all in the end, but that's up to the person in question.We're not talking about stealing bread to feed starving children. We're talking about handing over characters to people who put no work into them. I find that the eBayers and premade players typically have no idea what they're doing, so it's sort of like those buying have punished themselves already. But to say that somehow it's 'moral' to fight an 'unjust' system is hyperbole in the extreme, and incredibly dumb. The system is in place, and you buying a level 70 Ret Pally isn't going to somehow fight the power.If you are in charge of a guild and you are doing something that could result in a full ban, you are in the wrong. Justify it six ways from Sunday, but that's pretty much the epitome of a selfish, terrible leader.
